Anytime you spend a significant amount of money on a home improvement project, it’s in your best interest to have an idea of how it affects the value of your home.
For example, when we add a sunroom or patio enclosure to a home, we can always expect to see that become the most commonly used area in the house. It’s frequently used as a kid’s play room, a home office, or just a great place to gather the family.
All in all, in the Los Angeles area, you can expect to recoup up to 50% of the cost of patio or sunroom installation when you sell your home.
Decks and patio covers can be even more beneficial, potentially recouping 90-100% of the cost. Plus, these usually include lifetime warranties that are often transferable to the new owners.
